Culture Watch

Bal Harbour Shops premier watch brands including Audemars Piguet, Buccellati, Bulgari, Chopard, David Yurman, Graff, Harry Winston, Hublot, Panerai, Rolex by Tourneau, Tourneau, and Van Cleef & Arpels kicked-off the Collectors Weekend with a viewing within their boutiques of rare and limited-edition timepieces.

Private watch events were also held in the center courtyard of the Shops for select brands including Tourneau, which highlighted the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon, Panerai, showcasing the Lo Scienziato Luminor 1950 Tourbillon GMT Titanio and Audemars Piguet featuring their Royal Oak Concept Flying Tourbillon and inviting guests to take part in a workshop under the guidance of a master watchmaker as collectors worked behind watchmaker benches to assemble a caliber 3090 movement and learn decoration techniques.

Over the weekend hundreds of auto connoisseurs and Supercar aficionados swarmed the center premium parking lot of Bal Harbour Shops to view the exceptional display of collectible and exotic cars during the must-attend show produced by John Temerian, Jr. and Ronnie Vogel which showcased the one-of-a-kind Pagani Huayra L’Ultimo, a completely new Hypercar created through a collaboration between Pagani of Miami’s Brett David and Pagani Automobili S.P.A. and inspired by Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton, and also the 1971 Lamborghini Miura S, owned by rock legend Eddie Van Halen for over 30 years and rarely seen in public.

Additional automobiles on display included a 1993 Ferrari 512TR, 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini LM002 “Lamborghini Truck,” prominently displayed in the center of the lot towing a 1988 Lamborghini Countach, and the 2018 Lamborghini Urus SSUV.

In addition to the car exhibition, the center courtyard inside of the Shops was transformed into a by-invitation only VIP suite for the weekend presented by Holman Motorcars where guests were able to enjoy bites by the Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club and sips by Diplomatico Rum while lounging in a luxurious haven with plush seating, mobile phone charging stations, and the sounds of a DJ spinning the turntables.
